My Classroom

Here's my beginning of the year Pinterest inspired UP bulletin board.  I couldn't find one exactly like what I had imagined, so I improvised. 
Here's my door!  I love Krista Wallden's work at Creative Clips Graphics.  Almost everything I make has something in it from her - like these chevron papers.
Here's my behavior chart in action!  I give tickets according to what color the students are on at the end of the day.  One for yellow, two for orange, and three for red.  The kids LOVE it!  You can snatch up my Behavior Chart here.
Here's our daily schedule - again with Krista's papers!
ALL year long last year I tried to think of a way to hide our closet.  I tried everything imaginable to get these curtains to stay up.  My mom walked in this summer and within 5 minutes, she came up with this marvelous solution - bike hangers and a PVC pipe.  She's a genius.
Remember when I made those bookshelves this summer?  Here they are in action!  With an amazing library organizing system from Maria Monore at Kinder-Craze!

Here's the only Reading Centers organization chart that I think will ever work for me.
My Birthday Chart with adorable cupcakes by...guess who!  Krista again! And my Teacher's Pet puppy - the best (and simplest) Classroom Jobs Chart imaginable created by A Teeny Tiny Teacher.
And last, but not least, my hanging lanterns.  It's hard to describe how much this adds to my classroom.  I can't even take a good picture to describe it.  If you are allowed to hang things in your classroom, DO!  It makes life so much happier!


  1. What a cute room! The fire marshall lets you hang the lanterns? We can't have anything hanging down because of the sprinklers. :(
    Everything looks so organized; LOVE.IT! :)

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet words! Well, I'm not sure if the fire marshall exactly "lets" me hang the lanterns, but I'm just playing dumb until I get told otherwise. ;) lol! I did have them up all year last year and no one said anything to me about it. We'll see what happens this year!
